[GB] T1 Tactile Switches - MOQ MET - Last day
« on: Tue, 10 September 2019, 16:30:01 »
IC THREAD HERE: https://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=102248.0

The Interest Check has gone really well. I am satisfied that there is enough interest in these switches to make it worthwhile to run a Group Buy.

The GB will be run on my subdomain https://preorder.opticboards.co.uk This is purely to keep GB orders separate from my day to day orders. Just makes running GB’s easier on my part.

The GB will run from today until 15th October 2019. This is a timeline of 5 weeks. Hopefully this will allow everyone to have a pay day during the GB and not miss out.
Manufacturing Lead Time is 10 Working Days. This should be completed by 29th October.
Shipping from China to me should take no longer than 7 days. The switches should be with me by November 5th. Customs depending.
Packaging of all orders shouldn’t take longer than 5 to 7 working days. This means that all orders should be posted by November 12th.

Shipping estimates are : UK 1-3 days, EU 3-5 Days, Rest of World 5-7 days. Customs depending.

Timelines are predictions only. But I have erred on the side of caution so the finished date **should** be earlier than predicted but no promises.

From now until the end of Friday September 27th I will be offering Free Shipping on all orders of 120 switches or more. Just use coupon code “freeship120” at checkout.
So if you were holding back, now is your chance to get in on this awesome Group Buy!

sorry for my ignorance but i'm not that deep into the switch game yet, how do these feel compared to lets say, kailh burnt orange or kailh brown regarding the tactility?
i've never had any -ealios on my hands but i would like a nice tactile bump if it's "stronger" than the kailh ones.

Much higher tactility. Smoother. Nice bottom out. It's in a different tier than those switches.

Joined. At this price they are great to check out. Having used Cherry Browns and Kailh Box Heavy Burnt Orange I am eager to find out what they feel like because the others have not been very exciting.

Fantastic to hear that everyone is joining in!

MOQ has been reached with 1 week left to go!!!

Shipping is now only £1 to anywhere in the world for the last week of the GB so why not join?!

Hi, I joined on the first couple of days in Sept, does this mean I would need to pay for shipping when many people who ordered later in the GB do not have to pay? I hate to be that guy but that kind of sucks. :(

I am in the same boat, ordered on Monday, and yesterday shipping was drastically reduced.

If you are that tight for money, drop me an email and I'll sort you out.

I'm using this GB as a way to test out different marketing strategies. Its providing a lot of useful data. After all I make next to zero profit from the group buy sales. Any profit I make will be from the extra switches I buy to then sell on my main store. Gotta get something useful out of running this Group Buy, What works best...free shipping or cheap shipping? Over 250 orders worth of data to answer that question with.

I can understand that it's useful data for you - but it is not perfect for early adopters ;)

so or so i'm happy that you take the effort and am waiting for the switches

I Can see the point of view of the early adopters. Anyone who has asked me has had the difference refunded. :)

I just saw this part of the pre order site and emailed you as well.

“Due to popular demand I will be selling these switches individually. I do ask that you abide by a minimum order quantity of 70 switches. I reserve the right to cancel orders of less then 70 switches. Each switch will cost £0.41GBP which is roughly $0.50USD.”

I want to make sure my order still goes through because I only ordered 60.

Is there anyway I can upgrade my order to 120 switches and jump on the “freeshipping120” coupon as well?

Thanks!

I have had only a few orders less than 70 switches, I have chosen not to cancel these orders. If you wanted to increase your order from 60 to 120 please email me ( George@OpticBoards.com) with your order number then I will send you a coupon to cover the shipping difference.

Sometimes the confirmation email gets delayed. Let me know your order number or email me (george@opticboards.com) with your name and email address and I will make sure your order got through.
